This album was recorded on Saturday the 16th of February 1980 between 8.10pm and 9.00pm in front of an invited audience at the studios of Industrial Records Limited. The object was to make a record of T.G. performing live without the often unpredictable influence of adverse playing conditions on the music and on the technical quality. In the days following this session a minimum of re-recording was done and the 8-Track master tapes were mixed-down into stereo.
The original channel allocation on the 8-Track master tapes was as follows:—
1. Rhythms (Chris)
2. Vocals & Echo Effects
3. Bass Guitar (Gen)
4. Cornet, Tape (Sleazy)
5. Cornet, Lead Guitar (Cosey)
6. Synthesisers (Chris)
7. Binaural Left
8. Binaural Right
Simultaneously to the 8-Track master, a colour video recording was also made, the camera being operated by Monte Cazazza. Video Cassettes of this are available from Industrial Records Limited by mail order.
The Sound Engineer was Stan Bingo.
This record is a Sinclair/Brooks production.
Those present at the recording were:-
